a poem for today, 15 December 2012
[a word-sorted sonnet of four sentences and its image]

Nonprocreative sex is allowed and fostered not because of society having moved any closer towards freedom, but because the reproductive labor demanded by modern capital is not merely that of population growth, but of the creation of the self, the individual, and consequently the identity.
My own belief is that there is hardly anyone whose sexual life, if it were broadcast, would not fill the world at large with surprise and horror.
Since life is growth and motion, a fixed point of view kills anybody who has one.
What exactly is the 'same' in same-sex attraction and 'opposite' in opposite-sex attraction.
